of the bill, but says he sees no reason not to sign it. the law is a big deal for many americans. nearly a thousand russian children were adopted here in just the last year alone. the move is largely seen as retaliation for a law president obama signed that restricts russian human rights abusers from traveling to the u.s. >>> our fourth story "outfront" tonight, arming our school principals. a proposal by arizona attorney general tom horn to give guns to school principals is gaining some support. horn says school shootings like the one in newtown, county, could be prevented if a school employee were armed and trained to use a gun. at least 36 investigators and three sheriffs are now backing the proposal, including sheriff paul babu of arizona, who's written, "the nra is correct. we need a cop in every school. we have a people problem, not a gun problem." sheriff paul babeu is "outfront" tonight. thank you for joining us. >> thank you, john. >> sheriff, i understand the attractiveness of this proposal, an armed guard, a school member training with a weapon. but let's look at the facts, go
the house of representatives, about to become law. let's go to the chief white house correspondent, jessica yellin. what's going on at the white house? >> reporter: hi, ali. president obama is going to be out here in the briefing room to make a statement within the next five minutes. he's scheduled to speak. i expect that he will congratulate congress for getting this over the finish line and at least acknowledge -- tell americans that their taxes for the most part will not be going up. and then pitch immediately forward to the next battles that washington will be facing and urge everybody in washington to tackle them in a more expeditious manner. i would like to tell you already senate minority leader mitch mcconnell, the chief republican in the senate who negotiated this final deal with the white house has already sent over a statement engaging the white house on this issue. they sent this one to the press saying -- looking ahead to the next battle. mcconnell says now it is time to get serious about reach duesidu america's out of control spending. it's a debate the people want, the debate
is adamant new gun laws are not the answer to stemming violence, down slightly from a year ago. on the other hand, a poll by "the washington post" and abc shows 52% of americans favor banning semiautomatic weapons, 59% support banning high-capacity clips. "outfront" tonight, roland and margaret. good to see you guys. margaret, i know that you grew up hunting, your dad took you hunting in colorado. one of the sea changes we've seen in the wake of this shooting is senators like joe manchin, mike warner, saying i've changed my mind, joe manchin saying, i've never hunted with more than three shells in a clip. why isn't this a conversation we can be having more broadly? and getting republican senators on board? >> i would also point you to the democratic governor of colorado in the wake of the aurora shootings also said, i'm not sure if an assault weapons ban would have stopped james woolsly in this mass certificate in colorado. an assault weapons ban wouldn't have stopped him. it's not just a republican or democratic issue. in 1994, the democrats took a huge political walloping -- do you like th
the two lived rent free. a law enforcement source says the two met in rehab and that her family believes green was the instigator. what appears to have been going on? >> we're still trying to determine precisely, but the biggest cause for concern was the explosives. >> hmtd is a signature al qaeda bomb making material. it was used successfully in the 2005 london subway bombing attack. and the new york city subway plotter tried to use it, but had trouble making it. >> it's a highly unstable bomb making element that is so unstable that terrorists have tended in the past to steer away from it because it's difficult to transport and to handle and can easily go off. >> police were turned on to the suspect by the tip. the alleged bomb makers invited a couple over to use the showers. that's when aaron green allegedly showed off the weapons and even blew up a small amount of explosives, right there in the apartment. law enforcement sources say the incident happened six weeks ago and authorities say the tipster might have been moved the call the police after the newtown school shooting. did they
into law have failed anyway if you hadn't? >> there is no question but that a number of places where we went in and invest it, we were investing in an enterprise that was in trouble. with the future was very much in doubt for it and we invested in one business that lost 50 or $60 million more the year before we invested and a lot of people didn't want to touch it. we were able to go in there with the current management team, helped get the business back on track. the managers' training but they were able to turn it around as a success and it is still around today doing quite well. provides jobs for a lot of people. the idea that somehow making a business profitable is different than helping people is really a foreign idea because the whole american free enterprise system is associated with creating success, making business is profitable. they can hire more people and growth. every investment that i made while i was responsible for an investment firm, every investment was designed to help the business grow and to become more successful. >> up next, one of my most frustrating interviews.
, but the house of representatives and signed into law by the president. >> there's so many contentious details here. any one of them might trip this up, but there are two big pillars we're talking about today more than anything else. the first one seems to have been successful. it has to do with the idea of where you're going to put the threshold for maintaining the bush tax cuts. the republicans wanted to maintain the bush tax cuts for everyone. the white house said no, not for everyone. we want to do it for middle income people, but wealthier people can pay more. the president wanted to say anybody making over $250,000 as a couple in this country should pay more. they should go to a higher level of tax rates. however, the republicans by and large said they didn't want anybody to pay more taxes, but some said, if you're going to pay more, let's make it a million dollars a year or more. where we are is somewhere down around here, around $450,000 a year per couple. this seems to be largely one of the coups today where the parties seem to agree that this is the cut-off point. i say that tentativ
